Top of the morning to you!

Happy St Patricks Day! Are you wearing your green today? To tell you the truth I can not claim any Irish ancestry, however I do go all out each year making part Irish Hubby his corned beef dinner. This picture is from last years dinner. Todays is currently boiling away in the pot! 
And while dinner is boiling away I am running to a long overdue hair appointment. By the time I get home I should be a pretty lass ready to serve my dinner, and maybe I'll wear my "Kiss Me I'm Irish " button, everyone likes to be a little Irish on Saint Patricks Day right? 

On my cutting table this week.... a lovely stack of fabric I will be using in my next project. Not yet sure, but I may add some wools to this and I can't wait to get started to see where this leads me! 

Until then.......
May the Leprechauns be near you,
to spread luck along your way.
And may all the Irish angels,
smile upon you this Saint Patricks Day!

Little Miss Purple

March is flying by! As you may know from my last post my friend Kathy was here last week all the way from Buffalo NY. She arrived on a blizzardy minus 2 degree day and we were so anxious she would not get here! But arrive she did, suitcase loaded down with some of our favorite Buffalo foods... Andersons beef on wecks, Sahlens hot dogs, a half baked Bocce pizza and Sponge candy. I'll tell you, she spoils us greatly! We had a fun filled visit. Our sewing project was quilting the top I made for my new kitten to be. Here it is all bound and washed, I hope she likes it LOL! 

Kathy and I both love tea. One morning we made scones, which were enjoyed with clotted cream
and French strawberry preserves, they were so yummy!

We did a little shopping and no trip is complete with out a stop at Andre's for pastries and chocolate! 
We had BBQ at Oklahoma Joes, no visit to Kansas City is complete without our famous ribs, pulled pork or brisket. We also dined at a French restaurant in the market section of Kansas City called Le Fou Frog. Dinner was different and extremely delicious, thanks to our Son for the excellent 5 star recommendation!

We went to the movies and saw Monument Men, and so as you can see, the week flew by all too fast. Thank you Kathy for a friendship that spans many years and miles, your visit was just what the Dr ordered!
Today was a much anticipated and long awaited day for me. Meet Daisy! This is a video clip of the kitten I am adopting from www.houseofstewardragdolls. She is a blue lynx rag doll kitten. You can view all 7 kittens and enjoy watching them grow by visting her web site. This was a difficult choice, they are all so cute but little miss purple collar has tugged at my heart strings from day one. All rag doll kittens are born white. At several weeks of age they begin to blossom like flowers with colors and markings coming in fully by the age of 2. The kittens are now 4 weeks old. Daisy will be ready to leave her mommy the 1st week of June. Such a long wait for me.... but I have shopping to do for her until then!
